(Reuters) – UK Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said he would temporarily lift night-flying restrictions at other airports in Britain, Sky News reported on Thursday.

Grayling said the move was to ease congestion caused by aircraft diverted from Gatwick Airport, according to a Sky News tweet.

Drones flying near Londons Gatwick airport grounded flights throughout Thursday, stranding thousands of Christmas travellers in what the government called a reckless attempt to cripple Britains second busiest airport.
